On the impact of U.S. Export Controls on Fundamental Research and Scientific Publications
On April 20, 2015, Matthew Goldstein, a Washington D.C. attorney with a law firm focused on international trade law, will discuss the implications of proposed changes to the scope of U.S. Export Controls on fundamental research and scientific publications. The proposed changes, soon to be published in the Federal Register, are expected to adversely impact private and university-based research and impose significant restrictions on the right to freely publish scientific information. The changes as proposed also would affect publications that are entirely funded by a private sector company, even if the research was independent of any Federal contract. The focus of the discussion will be on the scope of the proposed changes, their expected impact on research and development activities, and steps that private industry and academia can take to oppose unwanted agency rule making.
